Re: Password changes
Well Amazon has already fixed the flaw on their side so it should be safe to change the passwords on Amazon from my point of view

Scope
Does anyone know if this affects a typical consumer-grade router?  I have secure Telnet forwarded to one of the WiFi routers in my house that's running dd-wrt.  I telnet into that router to send a majic packet to sleeping machines if I need to remote desktop to them.  Does anyone know if OpenSSL provides the SSL implementation for secure telnet on a typical Linux router build?

Leveraging OpenSSL
I was explaining this vulnerability at work today and I asked a question but was given an answer that I am unsure is entirely true so I wanted to bring it here. I stated that OpenSSL is just one platform of SSL to be used. This vulnerability also only happens with a singular version of the platform. Someone I spoke with stated that this is leveraged by Apache servers, which to date comprise of around 53% of the server types out there. Looking at the stats in this article this may be the reason for the high percentage of confirmed compromised servers.

The statement made by the other party was that ALL Apache servers would leverage OpenSSL. My statement was that Apache servers don't need to be running that platform of SSL but I am not entirely certain. Do Apache servers only run OpenSSL or can it run other SSL platforms? Thanks,

Re: Password changes
Isn't it always time to change passwords? The rate at which vulnerabilites are uncovered seems to exceed my typing speed.

Password changes
So is it time to go change Amazon.com passwords? Also has Bruce Schneier ever give a bug an 11 on the 1 to 10 scale before?

Improving Enterprise Cybersecurity With XDR
Enterprises are looking at eXtended Detection and Response technologies to improve their abilities to detect, and respond to, threats. While endpoint detection and response is not new to enterprise security, organizations have to improve network visibility, expand data collection and expand threat hunting capabilites if they want their XDR deployments to succeed. This issue of Tech Insights also includes: a market overview for XDR from Omdia, questions to ask before deploying XDR, and an XDR primer.
